Following Kim v. Reins Internat. California, Inc. (2020) 9 Cal.5th 73, this decision holds that the fact that the plaintiff’s individual claim is time-barred does not prevent him from bringing a PAGA action to collect civil penalties as to the employer’s Labor Code violations as to other employees within the limitations period. Lab. Code 2699(c) requires only that the plaintiff have been employed by the defendant and that he be an employee against whom one or more of the alleged violations was committed. The section does not require that the plaintiff have a live individual claim against the employer. Thus in Kim, the employee could proceed with the PAGA claim despite having settled and dismissed his individual claim. So, too, here, the plaintiff may proceed with the PAGA claim even if his individual claim is time-barred.
